For your chance to win: Comment on the following Design Team members' blogs TODAY before midnight EDT. There will be ONE random winner chosen from the comments on today's Blog Hop blogs. That winner will win Butterflies and Wisteria. We will announce the winner's name on tomorrow's MFP blog post.

This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 345.
My color combo is from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 335 - Kraft, Red & Yellow with a dessert of green leaves, left off the dessert since I am on a diet. LOL.
My stamp set is from MARKS FINEST PAPERS called "BUTTERFLIES AND WISTERIA and was just released Tuesday.
I found some basic gray dp that is so old I can not even remember where I got it but it worked for today. I used some ruby red cs and kraft cs. The top portion of my kraft layer was embossed with the Victorian EF from cuttlebug. My focal image on the circle was stamped in momento tuxedo black twice, circle cut on one and the other one cut out and popped up after coloring both. I added some shine with my copic red glitter pen then doddled around the circle with my kraft marker.
Hope you like it and have a fabulous Wednesday
